The WordPress CMS


  • Powers 25% of websites

    According to data from W3Techs , on January 1, 2011 76.4% of websites used no CMS and about 13.1% ran WordPress (WP). Fast forward to November 9, 2015 when it was reported that only 57.4% of sites use no CMS and 25% use WP.

  • Free subdomains for bloggers

    Bloggers can obtain their own free subdomain of the wordpress.com domain name. E.g. myblog.wordpress.com. An intuitive, web-based GUI or graphic user interface supports a near WYSIWYG development environment. The acronym stands for “What you see is what you get.”

  • Background

    WordPress was developed in response to popular demand for a well architectured personal web publishing system. It was born in 2003, developed by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little based on an earlier system called b2. The platform uses PHP code to automate the repetitive tasks of web development. This was accomplished by using modular, reusable code snippets that are managed automatically through an intuitive graphic user interface or GUI.
